organic law. and saying that the constitution could not possibly have anticipated our every governing question. i invite you to imagine if you will, just close your eyes and just imagine the right wing outcry. if president obama called the constitution organic law. instead of saying this. liberals have always understood that, they understood it when president lincoln said it and when president obama said it. but conservatives have never, ever understood that when times change, so must we. and the day conservatives actually do understand that, they will no longer be conservatives. >>> obama land. let's play "hardball." ♪ >>> good evening. i'm chris matthews in washington. let me start tonight with this. yesterday we discovered the obama doctrine. put simply, it's to continue the american revolution well into the 21st century. defined economic equality for women, full equality all out for gay people. and full political and financial opportunity for people of color. everything about yesterday screamed with this manifesto from the makeup of the crowd to the people in the inaugural platf
anyone else under the law, for if we are truly created equal, then surely the love we commit to one another must be equal as well. our journey is not complete until no citizen is forced to wait for hours to exercise the right to vote. our journey is not complete until we find a better way to welcome the striving, hopeful immigrants who still see america as a land of opportunity. until bright young students and engineers are enlisted in our workforce rather than expelled from our country. >> there's grievance there, not just rights. people waiting in line. i said this before, i was lucky to be there when south africans first got the vote, all south africans, and they waited for four or five hours, and i thought that was unbelievable. and then to watch people in america, in this advanced society of democracy, having to wait eight hours. it looked like a punitive action by republicans, to be blunt about it, from state legislatures and big capital cities that decided, you know what? let's make it hard for these people. maybe we can cut down that vote. >> that's one of those great underr
as it should be. if the republicans had gotten that law passed before the location he wouldn't have only gotten 4 out of the 13 electoral votes although he had the majority of the votes. that's called tricky and perhaps dirty politics. to give you a sense of it p president obama cleaned romney's clock when it comes to electoral votes. now maybe we should just go with the popular vote which i this is fairer and president obama's margin of victor of popular column is larger than the popular vote over all. but if you did the republican plan, even though president obama won the popular vote by 5 million and currently won over by 120 votes in the electoral college. in the republican fan the republican candidate would woo have been. is this so controversy that even some republicans are saying, well it seems a little embarrassing. here is pat mullin in virginia who said changing the electoral college rules in vow is not at all on my list of priorities. people get mad when you try to subvert democracy and have someone who did not win the popular vote become the president, not that that would ever happe

michigan is the state with the republican law to let the state fire all your locally elected officials and unilaterally abolish your town if they want to on their own say so, no matter how you vote. in november this past election, michigan voters repealed that with a direct vote, the will of the people. the month after that, governor snyder and the republicans in the legislature gave the voters of michigan a big michigan republican one-finger salute. they decided to pass and sign into law a new emergency manager law to replace the one that the voters just killed. except this new one can't be killed by the voters. what's that you say? the will of the who now? i'm sorry, have we met? you know those really funny videos about the honey badger and about how the honey badger don't give a bleep? michigan republicans are the honey badgers of politics. they do not give a bleep. because michigan republicans do not care what anyone thinks of them, certainly not the press, but apparently also not the voters, michigan is my personal nominee. michigan is my nominee for the one state that is shameles
the country to oppose the white house effort to reform the nation's gun laws. at demonstrations in pennsylvania and ohio, gun owners pilloried calls for stricter gun control. >> no law put on law abiding citizens h crime. they're going to take my gun so i can get shot. >> my thoughts is, tell the leftwing liberal idiots in washington to leave our guns alone. we're not hurting anything. it is the criminals. deal with the criminals, not the law abiding citizens. >> the pro-gun rallies also coincided with a series of nationwide gun shows where at least five people were wounded when their firearms accidentally went off. in north carolina, three people were injured when a shotgun accidentally fired as its owner removed it from its case. another gun owner accidentally shot himself in indianapolis, while an ohio a gun show attendee was injured by stray bullet. president obama is set to publicly take the oath of office today at his second term inauguration in washington. obama gathered with his family sunday in the blue room of the white house to privately recite the 35-word oath read t
. and later, live coverage of a forum examining a law passed in 2005 that sets minimum standards for driver's licenses and state-issued id documents. >> now, a group of journalists discuss the 2012 elections and the future of the republican party. they comment on why mitt romney lost the presidential election and the strategies republicans should utilize to appeal to a wider range of voters. among the participants are weekly standard editor bill kristol and msnbc host and former congressman joe scarborough. this forum was part of a conference hosted by the national review institute that examined the future of conservativism. it runs about 90 minutes. [inaudible conversations] >> hi, everyone. wow, wow. incredibly loud, louder than i thought. apologize. i apologize to your eardrums. i'm with national review, and this is our panel on what's wrong with the right. it's going to take the next 72 hours, so i hope you all have provisions for the next couple of days. i'm here with john pod hotter and bill kristol, founder and editor of "the weekly standard," and we're going to get right into it. jo
of the governor and the mayor. big corporate donors, big business owners. they are so many laws -- there are so many laws. they treat you like slaves. host: how is the issue of immigration factoring into what is happening in texas? if we expect the president to make remarks on immigration in las vegas this week. caller: it falls back on the standard of living. it does not matter if you are an immigrant or not. if you are a person that is living in the country that does not provide the wealth to keep your family strong, and at the same time enough money that the government -- every week. host: thank you for your call. the highest salary is $179,000. the lowest is in maine for $70,000. the average governor salary is $130,000. billy is up next in florida on the independent line. caller: hello. i was watching the local news the other day in florida. they had gov. scott in tallahassee saying they had not see an -- they had not seen any money for the medicare program. >> what did you make of that? caller: i think they are in trouble. i am 75 years old and i have lost my medicare coverage. host: are y
laws have been enacted restricting abortion rights and curbing the number ever abortion providers. i want abortion to be legal, safe, and rare, but restricting access makes it rare for the wrong reason and drives many women to self-administered abortions that endanger their lives and reproductive future. in a nation where 40% of children are born to unwed mothers, we are hurting our nation by making family planning harder. i thank god and country that when i fell into a bad situation, abortion was there to save me and keep me on a path toward building a strong family i have now and i pray that safety net remains in place. people who have children when they're prepared leads to stronger children, stronger families, and thus stronger adults and a stronger america. and now a man who is a good husband and a great father, according to his own account, martin bashir. >> toure, what can i say. thank you very much for the obscene compliment and good afternoon. it's friday, january the 25th, and the republican national committee has learned its lesson. the problem isn't them, it's those am
anyone else under the law. >> joining me now bill schneider, resident fellow third way, washington think tank and tara mcguinnes senior vice president of communications at the center for american progress. hello to both of you. >> hey, thanks for having us. >> bill, let's start with the speech. not just conservatives here who say that it was progressive. salon.com calling it the most liberal speech of obama's presidency. did the president miss a chance here to reach out to republicans, bill schneider? >> i don't think he was trying to do that. he was trying to basically stay -- say that he believes that government can do a lot of good and just about every issue that you quoted the president on is something that most americans believe. he was saying the era of reaganism is over. president reagan said taxing power of government should not be used to regulate the economy or bring about social change but we do that all the time and the president was defending government. >> tara, a lot of people have been pointing out lately this a majority of the country supports things like same-sex marria
the law in places like virginia and ohio. >> but professor peterson, on the one hand we have the re-elected chair saying he wants to reach out. he wants to welcome everyone, and on the other hand republicans are seeking to rig the system. i mean, who is being honest here? which side of the party are we supposed to believe? >> well, listen, the move to sort of establish this federal gerrymandering, one, should open the american populace's eyes to the way in which the states have been gerrymandered, but, two, it smacks of the same kind of sin stesh strategy and the political moves the republicans have been making recently, and i think we have to trust that because that's indicative of the kind of behavior they've engaged in in the past. they do have to stop talking about reaching out and actually reach out, right? what they really need, and i don't know if there are any strategists or consultants who can do this for them, they need some cultural competence in their party. they need to understand how the culture of the people operate in these shifting demographic times and without thos
at the enemy who are trying to take the united states and replace it with sharia law. a young medical lieutenant who went to a conference and the imam gets up there and says that we have to take the word of god, the koran, and replace the constitution with it. he -- like the 27-year-old said, that's sedition, and anybody in this audience should leave. he was in uniform. so what we need to do in america is to find out who is our enemy? and know one has been able to articulate that until rick santorum did so. he completely understands the threat. we are at war. the algerian incident, the libyan incident, the cole bombing, this is not isolated incidents by kid with 17-year-old acne cases and think i'm going to blow somebody up. this is a concerted evident to take down america and if you look at the dallas holyland trial, i gave speech to 800 people. the speaker before me said, how many of you heard about the dallas holy land trial where the muslim brotherhood was -- had a document said we want to replace the constitution with sharia law. eight hand went up. so i think the fact that on th
. >> there seem to be a pretty broad discussion, he wanted to make sure that those who under the law are able to be constitutionally denied access to a weapon, like somebody who is adjudicated, not cable bill because of the mental capacity and or a convicted felon, and or somebody who has been guilty of domestic violence under the law, they are not allowed to own a weapon. they are able to be denied ownership of a weapon. one of the problems pointed out was there was an adjudication of the gunmen who committed the crime at the virginia tech. he was able to go out and purchase two weapons about one month apart. we talked about the nation of the universal background checks. we talked about making sure that state equipped the system that washington has on prohibitive persons on file. so if you go to a gun dealer or dick's sporting goods to buy a weapon, use what your card or this what it and find out if you are part of the prohibited class of people. we talked a lot about that. we also talked a great deal because we have three people, one psychiatrist and two others who have been a great deal of
for life, calling for new laws to outlaw abortion. one of the most powerful anti-abortion voices is the catholic church which firmly believes life begins at conception. one catholic hospital in colorado finds itself on the opposite side of this debate. it's an amazing story. "outfront" with this investigation. >> there wasn't one person that went into that er, there were three. >> reporter: jeremy's wife laurie, seven months pregnant with his twin boys. it was new year's day 2006. laurie was vomiting and couldn't breathe. he rushed her to st. thomas hospital in canyon city, colorado. >> laurie looked and up her head went down on her chest. >> reporter: in the lobby of the emergency room she went into full cardiac arrest from a pulmonary embolism. laurie stodgehill, 31 years old, died. and who did her 28 week along unborn twins. >> i didn't even get to hold them. i have an autopsy picture. that's all i've got. >> reporter: stodgehill sued the hospital and its owner, catholic health initiatives, which operates nearly 80 hospitals in 14 states. he filed the wrongful death suit on be
to the fullest exp tent of the law. over the past five years we have joined forces to put real reforms into place. we've assured victims are taken seriously, provided medical care and support and the cases are investigated and prosecuted. last year congress passed reforms in how the military tracks sexual assault to paint a picture of just how big the problem is. we also established a commission to take a critical look at the uniform code of med teenage justice and make recommendations for reform to make sure that the system can successfully prosecute sexual assault. however, legislation is not the only answers. commanders at every level in every service must make eliminating sexual assault and all forms of sexual misconduct from their commands the highest of priorities. senior leaders at all levels must hold accountable for pursuing allegations of sexual misconduct. we will accept nothing less. i understand that the air force has already made several changes to improve the safety and effectiveness of basic training. i would like to hear from our second panel if the safeguards put in place are su
and attorney general eric holder involved. the push back against the proposed virginia law was swift and it was loud, and it made a difference. one republican senator already said that she will not support the bill. today another republican joined her, calling it a bad idea. and in a senate with a 20-20 split, these two votes make a big difference. virginia governor bob mcdonnell, he saw the writing on the wall. he rejected the bill through a spokesperson. the governor does not support this legislation. he believes virginia's existing system works just fine as it is. he does not believe there is any need for a change. so the reaction scared off republican lawmakers down in the state of florida, who were trying to pass a similar law. the gop, speaker of that house in florida said today i don't think we need to change the rules of the game. i think we need to get better. amen to that if you're a republican. but this is all good news if you're a lefty. but it's no time for democrats to ease up at all. republicans are not going to surrender easily. molly ball from "the atlantic" reported
's called bibles, badges and business. it's a group of church leaders, including evangelical pastor, law enforcement officials and small business leaders that will press for immigration reform on the local level, the grassroots level, and some of these grassroots leaders, as well as other advocates, con firmed to me that the white house has its own legislation, its own immigration reform bill, that it has been writing for some time now, very detailed, but it is unclear whether that will ever see the light of day, wolf, now that the senate has come out with its own proposal, wolf. >> dana, is it an accident that the senators were unveiling their plan on this day? >> no, it's not. it's because of what jessica was talking about. the president planning a major address on this issue tomorrow. i am told by multiple sources in both parties that these bipartisan senators wanted to get out today in order to signal to everybody out there, but perhaps most importantly, to republicans who may be on the fence about supporting a bipartisan effort, that this is independent of what the president is doin
gun laws. our next guest saying not only can democrats push for gun control in the south and win, some have already done so! joining us now is our favorite nerd in the world, nate cohn, staff writer for "the new republic." how are you? >> good to be back. >> you say in the new article, pro-gun control dems can win in red states and succeeding in dixie with a "f" from the nra. what? how? who? how are they doing this? >> best example is bill nelson who ran for the first time in 2000 when gun control supposedly cost al gore the presidency and won the state by five points and most importantly, he was winning in pensacola and -- not pence ka lo but the florida panhandle. he was carrying a place like liberty county which voted for romney by 40 points in november. and these are areas that are only separated from alabama by an artificial border and he didn't just have a "f" rating from the nra. >> nate, "the washington post" polled republicans before the president announced his gun control package. and there were a lot of people who are very much in favor of the things the president would end
-create it again in denver or washington state one day. and not have to worry about the law. [laughter] >> obama was very interesting. in my defense, a week before, two weeks before the election in 2008, i wrote a column, sort of separating myself rather severely, to use a romney word, from some of my colleagues on the right who had defected to obama, and i named them, and i said that i was going down with the mccain ship because i knew it would be going down and i wasn't going to waiver. i never imagined i would support obama over mccain. i was very strongly for mccain. i thought he was a very good man. he didn't run a very strong campaign. we seem to have a habit of doing that. but here's what's interesting about obama. if you remember the transition, he made very centrist appointments. he appointed a -- he had, for example, he kept gates at defense. he picked geithner for treasury who had worked and -- hand and glove with the bush administration through the financial crisis. he picked hillary as secretary of state, volcker was one of the major advisors. the former president of harvard, i'm ge
to become law with the make-up of this new congress? >> well, rev, i've been working on these issues now for about 20 years. and we have a good coalition in the house. we've already reintroduced the magazine and we're getting ready to introduce the companion bill to senator finestein's bill. what we really need, though, is the voices of the american people to be heard. you can not underestimate the lobbying power of the nra in congress. and even my office, even though people know that i am a strong advocate for gun safety legislation, i get calls every day from nra members. and so what really needs to happen to change this debate in washingt washington, in congress, is the moms and dads, the aunts and uncles and husbands and wives of america need to call their members of congress and they need to tell them that they support this ban on the assault rifles and the ban on the assault magazines. >> well, let me tell you why, congresswoman, i think that that is extremely a feasible strategy of getting people to call it a people movement from the bottom up. look at these startling numbers that
firm because the group was breaking the law. then there was the current ohio secretary of state, john huestead, who tried to change the rules for early voting in his state. that didn't work. in other rules the changes to early voting rules caused massive voting problems. >> the lines for early voting are long, and for many time-consuming. you were in line how long? >> for an hour and 55 minutes, to be exact. >> reporter: at the alafaya library on east colonial the line was out the door and down the street. the neighborhood looked like a sea of cars. >> if i had waited until tuesday, i think that probably would have been more stress and the lines are definitely going to be longer. >> today the "orlando sentinel" newspaper reported more than 200,000 people in florida did not vote because of the long lines. those lines were engineered by republican governor rick scott, who made last-minute changes to early voting schedules. republicans in florida jammed the ballot with initiative after initiative, creating a very long voting experience. these efforts all fell flat because the american pe
policies more coherent, that a law on the tax side in health care reform side. you are in a position where the economy and locks are removed. the interesting problem is that if it is time to improperly it is there. he may benefit. this could happen. there could be a big economic recovery. maybe you have the interesting aspect that it is good for everybody. it would vindicate a lot of our ideas. it solidified the sense that obama had claimed america. >> this made a strong case for targeting. you have been writing for years numbat while the democrats have their various pressure groups that republicans and conservatives should think hard about parents. we should perhaps target more policies toward the interest of the parent. >> targeting in the sense that it is vital to explain why a conservative policies are good for them. the idea is not that we should think about what we're going to advocate. this is not only impossible for conservatives, it would be very unwise. let me start by saying that i think the danger of choking off the base is vastly overstated. the fear of that is what causes a l
